[June 23-25] Inherit The Wind – auditions and crew

Peter J. (theatreinlondon.ca admin)

Inherit The Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee


Considered by many as one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century, Inherit The Wind is a fictional retelling of the 1925 “Scopes Monkey Trial,” in which a young Tennessee school teacher was charged with teaching Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. The play is not just a debate about creationism and evolution but also mirrors the continuous conflict between different belief systems and our right to think for ourselves, a conflict as topical today as it was 80 years ago.

AUDITIONS: Monday June 23, Tuesday June 24, and Wednesday June 25


The actors are asked to come with a one minute section from an American playwright. They will be allowed to read it if they wish. They should have read the play which they can get from the theatre office. Rehearsals begin the last week in August for some players. The ages are from 13 years to 70, which makes it available to a very broad range. Rehearsal night cannot be announced yet because of the 35 plus cast. The appointments will be every five minutes. Please contact the LCP office to book an appointment.

Crew Required: Please contact David Long at 519-854-7387 or dlong7387@rogers.com
